January 1, 1991, Ambassador Bill Lane sent me to Egypt, Greece and Germany to interview Kuwaitis. The top leaders were sailing on boats from Luxor to Aswan. Our compound in Cairo was guarded by private security on an island in the middle of the Nile River. For safety reasons, I was also stations alone on an island in the middle of Nile River in Aswan. Lane’s father founded Sunset Magazine under the publishing company Lane Publishing. Sunset was the first magazine covering the West Coast. The war began 17 days after I arrived from California where I was studying at San Francisco State University. I recorded my last will in case of death on a cassette tape. My Egyptian translator sent the cassette tape to my mother.
